The VLM-FX9 is a direct V-Lok fitting for Sony’s FX9 camera allowing the user to use higher-powered V-Lok batteries rather than BPU batteries which are the standard battery for the FX9 camera.

The adaptor attaches via the lock-in mechanism in the FX9’s battery compartment and then finally screwed to the top of the camera body to secure in place.
